Porsche will be making a return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans next year, competing in the GTE class with two 991-based 911 RSR race cars.

The team will also compete in the 2013 World Endurance Championship (WEC), which should please Porsche fans until the German automaker unleashes its LMP1 competitor in 2014.

It will be the Porsche AG Team Manthey that will be competing next season and the German automaker has confirmed that the new 911 RSR is being developed by its engineers and tested by its works drivers. Managing the team will be Olaf Manthey, whose accolades include five overall wins with Porsche at the Nurburgring 24 Hours race and recently campaigned a 911 GT3 RSR in the International GT Open.
